Beauty | Collection Speedy Highlighter

As far as highlighters go, and admittedly the majority of my cosmetics collection, for me the less faff that comes with the application process the better. The quicker I can do my makeup, the quicker I can get going with my day & the easier my life will be... And I for one, am 100% down for that!

With Summer hopefully just around the corner I was on the lookout for an illuminating product that would sit well with a dewy foundation & one that would give a more natural glowing look. I opted for the Collection Speedy Highlighter initially because the name really stuck out to me, but after opening & swatching I thought the colour was really beautiful & exactly the type of product I was on the hunt for.

I chose the lightest shade, 01 Pearl Sheen which is a bronzey nude shimmer. My highlighter game isn't that strong & I didn't want a product that would make my face look like a glitter ball so for me this shade is perfect!
I'd definitely say this highlighter is a great starter product because of the shade and shimmer pay off, it's not massively glittery, it adds more of a natural glow to the tops of the cheekbones which I love!
If you're looking for something with a higher shimmer pay off, I think this product would work amazingly well as a base with a powder highlight over the top. I'm not quite brave enough to rock this look yet, but for others I think it's work brilliantly well.
The collection highlighter does exactly what it says on the tin, all you need is a super speedy swish on the tops of the cheekbones to give you that natural sun kissed glow.
To blend I've used my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, however if I'm honest using your hands works just as well for me & it's quicker.
The longevity of the Collection Speedy Highlighter is fab! I usually apply this around 6am (eek) and find it lasts almost to the end of the day.
Because it's such a natural highlight anyway I don't mind it wearing off towards the evening as I can easily reapply if I need to.
What enhances my love for this highlighter even more so is the price! Oh my goodness, this highlighter set me back a mere £2.99 - It's a complete bargain & one I'm pretty sure I'm going to be going back for.

Have you tried the Collection Speedy Highlighter before? What else should I be picking up from Collection?
